Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) posted a video to social media on Tuesday showing how he believes drivers should handle far-left protesters who sit in the street and block traffic.

Cotton promoted the video on X just a day after calling for people to confront protesters who block traffic and remove them from the road.

“I encourage people who get stuck behind the pro-Hamas mobs blocking traffic: take matters into your own hands to get them out of the way,” Cotton posted on X on Monday. “It’s time to put an end to this nonsense.”

Cotton’s remarks came as far-left pro-Palestinian protesters blocked roads across the country on Monday to protest Israel, which just endured an attack from Iran over the weekend.

The most notable examples of protesters blocking roads included Interstate 190 leading into O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Manhattan-bound traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.

Other examples included protesters shutting down Interstate 5 in Oregon, streets in Philadelphia, and the main road leading to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Cotton then on Tuesday posted a video clip from late 2022 in France that showed a group of drivers getting out of their vehicles and dragging the protesters off the road so motorists could pass.

“How it should be done,” Cotton wrote in a post with the video.


Cotton also remarked during an interview with Fox News this week that in certain parts of the country, it would not be wise for protesters to block traffic on bridges because motorists might throw them off the side of the bridge.


“Let’s just say I think there would be a lot of very wet criminals that would have been tossed overboard — not by law enforcement, but by the people whose road they are blocking,” he said. “If they glued their hands to their car or pavement, it’d probably be pretty painful to have their skin ripped off.”
